Forum: etree Subject: Flac Md5 failing

I was using shn for my uploads for awhile, but I decided to try Flac. I did the wav > Flac fine. did the fingerprint, then used md5summer to generate an md5 file for the whole show and i check that md5 file and it cleared fine but it keeps getting rejected by your MD5 checksum verification.

i am missing something? i have done all the research on how to upload flacs and i don't think i missed anything.

help?

oh, just looked and the reason why is htat you have the .txt files listed in the md5. the archive.org system doesn't like that. remove those two lines in the md5:

dedffa91b647ab1c5b6ab7b499bfcb18 *Bump2005-02-23-ClubChelsea-ffp.txt
b62cc9d185ab661730952c7abe559aee *Bump2005-02-23-ClubChelsea.txt

and save it (edit the md5 on your HD) upload the new one overwriting the existing md5 and then resubmit. should roll public just fine.

ok i'll try that, but my the error was this:

The following files had errors:
Bump2005-02-25d2t01.flac

Bump2005-02-25d2t02.flac


and those flac files are fine, nothing different from what i started with

Try uploading those 2 again. If the MD5 passes on your computer, then there's something wrong with the copy on our server and you need to delete and reupload those tracks.

also, since you have an md5, the systems should e-mail you with an e-mail saying what specifially track failed the md5. then just re-uplaod that one and be set. if 100% of the files fail, you might be in binary (or need to be in binary) not sure, check the FAQ's there is an entry for that

md5summer may be your problem...it inserts extra garbage into the checksum it creates that the contribution engine may not like. Try opening the md5 in a text editor like Notepad and deleting any extraneous text, and see if that helps. :)

hmm, while yes, md5summer does put junk in the header (two lines starting with # that is a date / time stamp and an ad link to md5summer.com) that should not and does not trip the archive's md5 checkker to fail. it only tripps up mkwACT's md5 summer check. .. if the md5 is failing, regardless if it is flac or shn, re-que the entire fileset and maybe the one file that didn't fully upload will finish out and be set. just hit 'mark resolved' when you're done uploading and it will re-que the show to be md5 checked.
